slow there and 395 and slow and coming across the 395 bridge. that's what's open. a twist in a murder case. the man who abducted jaycee lee dugard -- could be a murderer. the police are gathering evidence from his home. he and his wife were rrested last week of kidnapping the 29- year-old. the police are searching for evidence linking that man to several prostitute murders in the 90s. >> you know, it's too early to say what we're looking for. anything linked to open cases that we have. we're going thoroughly through both backyards and it's too early to say what we'll come up

that we're seeing about the stockholm syndrome. >> that's what it is. the same syndrome where, when you're -- it's adaptive to shutdown and go along with what's expected of you. what happens is you can't get out of it to survive and shutdown. you stay in the psychological rut and that's where you proceed. especially someone as young as she was. >> and we see instances of captives running, is that a personality trait. >> well, it can be different. and first of all, the age of the person, the sort of psychological temperment of the person. it can be the perception of
danger. and you'll see people reacting differently. and some recognize and this is the chance to get out. and in a situation where you have a young woman and adults overpowering her, that's not surprising. >> and she's older and she mothers the two children, this is whole different level she's dealinwith and the reports are that the kids are fathered by the man and they wept when they saw him taken away. >> well, that's not surprising, this is the new normal for them. you'll see in victim of the stockholm syndrome, the since if they're not experiencing pain and aggression from a person, this is an act of kindness, they're feeding them and clothing them and giving them a place to sleep. they don't see that this is a
person victimizing them. you'll have a distortion of their thinking, this is my savior. >> what in the world happens now? when we report these stories, still, we're like, what happens though, we ow it doesn't end when they just reunite. >> you're right, it will ba long road. jaycee lee dugard will have to thaw out from the state and her kids have known nothing else it will be tougher to teach them about being independent and trusting individuals and breaking away from family members and having families of their own. it's all something that has to be created from scratch. >> never been to a doctor or school or socialized beyond is yard. >> that's correct and this is a long haul for all of them. >> is there anything we cn learn from this? is there a teaching, a learning
moment as we've heard? in a sense, yes, all of us can see we have a version of a psychological rut. sometimes we don't do things that we know when he should because we're bogged down with a certain frozen state. there may be some out there battered spouses and that's something they can learn from this. and they can learn they need to get over the hump and get the initiative. and in general. we can learn that we need to allow them to -- >> i wish we had more time, i wanted to talk about that. he was known as creepy phil, no one got close and maybe we'll have another time to talk about it. >> thank you. and thank you.
